Want to present at our 2020 conference?
Deadline date : December 15,2019
The theme of this year’s conference is
What motivates gifted students to engage in and take ownership of their learning?
What are some ways to inspire gifted learners to leave their comfort zones, capitalize on their passions, and create something productive?
How can we help them persevere through the inevitable failure they will encounter along the way?
Gifted children tend to have a plethora of brilliant ideas, but sometimes they have a great deal of difficulty bringing those ideas to fruition. With this theme, the focus is on helping learners find direction and focus for their multitude of passions. Students must develop the ability to convert their brilliant ideas into purposeful products or solutions. Our future depends on them!
